    Took 60+ years to raise the question; what held Mr. Flintstone's rear axle in place? Come to think of it, how'd it steer?

    Shepherds wear stilts (tchangues) to navigate marshy ground. Gascony, France. Circa 1895.

    looks like tri pods to keep out of the bugs&stickers/weeds/poop. i kinda doubt you can traverse mussy ground on stilts.
